So, we're three days away
from the show, in my showroom.
We're working on the
with their hair and make-up.
And we're casting
at the same time.
This is the magical moment
when everything takes shape,
the girls are ready, the make-up
is ready, the hairstyles are ready,
and the clothes are ready.
It's a fantastic time.
It's true, in fact, that I've always taken
the word 'ready-to-wear' literally.
What I'm interested in, is dressing
people for their everyday lives, watching,
finding out why we choose one kind of clothing style
is chosen over another clothing style.
I'm very much about real life.
I've got kids, I take them
to school, and I drive a scooter.
I don't have a driver who
picks me up and waits for me.
I like to do my shopping,
and go to the market with my trolley.
I can't always be perched up
on fifteen-centimetre high heels,
dressed in a pencil skirt
with five-centimetre long nails.
That's not who I am at all my look.
What I am interested in is, how, bearing in mind that
clothes are made
to be worn,
that we can to feel good in them,
we want to look different,
without having to hide away feeling like we're in disguise,
that's really my
challenge every season,
by telling myself stories to myself
and travelling a little because
that's what I like when I’m doing the collections.
All the same, you've
always got to think about
the real girl who will be wearing the clothes
and I myself will always opt
for a relatively
simple and comfortable style,
before settling on over
a look which says: here I am.
I remember my first show
very, very well.
It was crazy really
because I had spotted
a place nearby which was
completely ruined and abandoned.
The place was simply magical.
I was allowed
to parade hold the show in it.
One week before the show, once
the invitations had been sent out,
They suddenly called me: "oh no,
it's not going to be possible".
And, then, bang!
You're twenty two, you've put
all your energy into this crazy show.
Everything collapses all of a sudden,
one week before the show
with the invitations
already sent out.
So I said: "OK", and undeterred, "I'll do it anyway,
with or without permission or authorisation".
We were absolutely terrified,
but as ever, right up until the last minute
that the mayor should suddenly drop in
to see whether we'd done it anyway something or not,
and the music was blaring, there were balloons,
we had planned to have a party afterwards.
We did everything.
